Will this ultimately result in a health catalyst to break the current cycles of infection from surface contact infections? There may soon be a new weapon in our centuries-old battle against germs: the first durable coating that can quickly kill bacteria and viruses and keep on killing them for months at a time.m

As reported in the journal Matter, the coating proved deadly to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), E. coli, MRSA, and a variety of other pathogens. It killed 99.9% of microbes even after months of repeated cleaning, abrasion, and other punishment on real-world surfaces like keyboards, cell phone screens, and chicken-slathered cutting boards.

Yup coat everything in this muck and sit back and watch a whole generation of people grow up developing NO natural immunity to anything, who are invalided by the common cold and die of the first bout of flu they catch.
Two generations on and it a society of people living in sealed rooms wrapped in cotton wool for fear of a splinter or a graze resulting in an infection, amputation and death.

My first thoughts exactly.

That Len was why at the age of 11 or 12 I suggested to my specialist doctor that I cease taking a large dose of penicillin every day rather than continue for another 9 or 10 years.
I ceased consuming it and am now 30+ years beyond my use by date according to doctors giving their learned prognosis.

I'm fascinated that this posted twice. One copy that I added a photo to the text is the one that has been subjected to puerile American vitriol.
Does this prove that these US trolls only select posts with photographs?

@FrayedBear The over prescription of anti-biotics is second only to the over prescription of opiates in the list of profit driven medical stupidities.

@LenHazell53 Was it profit driven 60 years ago?

@FrayedBear OH Yes have you heard of the Thalidomide crisis?
Thousand of children born deformed with low life expectancies, yet still turned a profit even after pay outs to victims and is still available solely from Chemie Grünenthal
This company was founded in 1946 by Hermann Wirtz, Sr. A Nazi and his his head of research the inventor of thalidomide Heinrich Mückter, a former Nazi scientist who spent his war service experimenting on Jews and homosexuals at Buchenwald concentration camp.
Still today under various brand names thalidomide is marketed all over the world for the treatment of various conditions, and was Chemie Grünenthal most profitable product ever, until they invented Tramadol in 1977. It is the drug that is the number one proliferator of opioid addiction and is the 35th most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 19 million prescriptions in 2021.
There was also Primodos which was sold between 1959 and 1978 and caused huge birth defects in the children of women who took it to detect pregnancy!
Even when the alarm was raised that in South Korea doctors were prescribing a double dose of the filthy drug to induce miscarriages and calling it the 100% certain abortion pill, this did not stop Schering AG from continuing to sell it giving them a market value of $17.9 billion when they were bought out by Bayer health in 2004.
In 2017 Bayers again refused to pay compensation to surviving victims of Primodos stating that as yet there was still NO “causal association” between Primodos and severe disabilities in babies. despite the fact that doctor all over the world actually diagnose the problem as Primodos syndrome.
Bayer and their predecessors Schering's legal teams have held up their legal obligation how for 62 years, during 20 of which they were still selling the shit as a pregnancy test.
Incidentally the two active ingredients of Primodos norethisterone and ethinylestradiol are both still sold by Bayer AS CONTROCEPTIVE PILLS!

@LenHazell53 Shit, I am naïve & too trusting! I remember when thalidomide came to light & seeing the photos of the defects that it caused.
Tramadol & Primodos are both news to me. Thanks fyi.
Even McBride who exposed thalidomide was proven to falsify results - [] However he did propbably save a lot of defects occurring.


I heard this on the news and do not know what to make of it.

Do you remember the source? Fearlessfly as usual denigrates the messenger not the message.
